About the Book

This book is a series of reminiscences of the experiences and impressions of the author during the first two decades of his life in India where the foundations of his spiritual, scientific, and intellectual framework were laid. As he remembers them, he also reflects on the cultural streams which enriched his life. The French subtitle, meaning "In Search of the Time lived," is inspired from Marcel Proust's famous work À la recherche du temps perdu: In search of the Time lost.
